Note: This installation manual can be applied to Spaceti Room Presence Smart Stone (part number: SRP0L2P100, S

Warning: For enabling all features of Spaceti system, it’s necesarry to have installed Spaceti connectivity HUBs in space and all sensors should be within a coverage. Please see Sensor Gateway installation.

List of steps:

  1. Choosing a suitable installation spot

  2. Cleaning the surface

  3. Placing Devices to the specific rooms

  4. Adding into system

  5. Installation

  6. Validation

Installation process

1. Choosing the proper installation spot

  • Choose installation spot approximately 2,5 - 4 m above the floor. Device should facing into the sensed room without any obstacles.

IMG: Position of the Sensor

  • Special care must be take about glass walls, sensor should not be faced to them because of false positives caused by motion behind these walls.

  • Device should not be faced to the entering door because of false positives caused by using them.

  • Install one or two sensors and test their functionality. Try to avoid false positives and false negatives. If sensors work properly continue to next steps of installation.

Warning: Putting device too low (under the 2,5m) will reduce detect pattern.

Note: One sensor can cover approximately 10x10m room, for covering larger room use more than one sensor.

Detail of the detection pattern:

2. Cleaning the surface

  • In the case of plastic, glass, metal or wood material the surface must be cleaned with alcohol cleaner MEC3. Clean approximately 10x10cm around the deploy spot.

  • In the case of concrete or painted walls clean the surface by the dry tissue or cloth.

  • Allow the surface to dry.

3. Placing devices to the specific rooms

  • Simply put the device MEC1 to the room in which device should be installed. Place the device upside down to be ready for QR scan into the system.

4. Adding devices into the system

  • Use Spaceti deploy app SW1 or Spaceti map editor SW2 for deploying device into the system.

Warning: Follow manual Map Editor user guide for detailed process of how to use SW1 or SW2.

5. Installation

  • Plug the platform MEC2 into device MEC1 according to images.

  • Position the platform in the way that the beak on the MEC1 part snaps into the recess of the MEC2 part.

  • On the platform, MEC2 and the bottom of the box MEC1 is cast text TOP and arrow. The two arrows must be facing each other. See image.

IMG 3 - orientation of the platform

  • Pir lens of the device MEC1 must be oriented down.

  • For YYY and ZZZ version of the surface remove cover of the proper sticker and stick the device on the chosen spot. Use at least 5s of hard pressure to the device to avoid falling down.

  • Turn the sensor on by releasing the battery contact blocking foil. Make sure the foil does not get stuck at the edge of the hole, it may cause the lead to get foil ripped. In case of faulty released foil replace the device for another one.

Note: The sensor can be “unbuckled” from the platform any time using TL1. Follow Spaceti Smart Stone uninstallation manual.

6. Validation

  • Installation needs to be checked after all devices are installed. This can be done in Spaceti dashboard.

  • “green” sensor - unoccupied

  • “red” sensor - occupied

  • “grey” sensor - not sending data

  • All sensors should be in the green or red state!

If sensor gray:

Check that foil is removed.

When the foil is removed, check if this specific sensor is sending messages (use Papertrail logging system). If no messages were sent there can be two causes of this issue:

  1. Device problem itself. Resolve it by changing this device for the new one. It is also should be redeployed in the Spaceti system!

  2. Gateway coverage problem. Try moving Gateway closer or add another one to this floor. For detailed information about the Spaceti monitoring system, follow Papertrail user guide user guide.
